Mexican Tortilla Barbeque Chicken

2 lbs. of chicken parts (preferably wings and legs)
1 bag of Nueva Cocina Tortilla Soup mix
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup water or white wine
1 plastic bag

Place the chicken in a plastic bag and coat it with olive oil. Take the ingredients of the Nueva Cocina Tortilla Soup mix and ¼ cup of wine or water and pour it into the plastic bag. Shake the bag, ensuring the chicken is well coated. Marinade for 6 hours or more.
To cook on a gas grill, turn all burners to high, close lid and allow to heat up for about 15 minutes. When hot, leave 1 burner on high and turn the rest to med-low. Remove chicken from marinade and place over the burner on high. Cook 2-3 minutes per side or until slightly browned. Move chicken to the cooler side of grill, and cook for approximately 15 more minutes, turning several times to avoid burning. This can also be cooked in the oven on a sheet pan at 350° for 30-40 minutes.


1 package of Nueva Cocina Picadillo seasoning mix
1 pound of extra-lean ground turkey
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely shredded carrot

Combine all ingredients thoroughly in a large bowl, and form mixture into four equal-size patties. Grill as preferred.
Makes 4 burgers

Taco Spiced Corn on the Cob

4 ears of corn (cleaned)
1 packet of Nueva Cocina Taco Fresco Seasoning Mix
¼ cup olive oil

Place the corn in a plastic bag and coat it with olive oil. Add the ingredients of the Nueva Cocina Taco Fresco Seasoning Mix, shaking the bag to ensure the corn is well coated.
Place the prepared ears of corn on a medium heat grill, rotating the corn as needed to keep it from getting charred too much on one side. After a couple of turns, place the corn on the top shelf of your grill, and close the cover. Allow the corn to slowly continue cooking for approximately 15 minutes. This can also be cooked in the oven on a sheet pan at 375° for about 20 minutes.
